Thanks John, what I liked with the PA1000 is the built-in TC Helicon harmonizer, Songbook, touch screen, KAOSS feature and the powerful built-in speaker system. It's my all-in-one arranger.
I like most with the E-A7 is the real-time controls facility, simplicity to use/customized, punchy drums, usability of styles, smf chords extractor/display and of course, the weight! I'm using TC-Helicon Perform V with the E-A7 for vocal processing/harmonizing. BTW, I love my previous KMA, it's really great for travelling.
You're welcome Donny, I know you're settled and enjoying the E-A7. I can't blame you, it's a great, litte E-80 brother.
